Contract Lifts - Let us take the responsibility

Safety is of paramount importance in the lifting industry, and for a client who requires a lifting operation but is not adequately trained or have the expertise to undertake a crane operation should ask us to provide a contract lift service.

Bringing Sussex Transport in to manage the full lifting operation means you do not have the worry and responsibility of planning, organising and managing the operation. We operate as per British Standard 7121 'Safe use of cranes and lorry loaders' and LOLER (Lifting Operation & Lifting Equipment Regulations).

Sussex Transport supply the Appointed Person, lift supervisors and slinger / signallers required to carry out the operation successfully and safely. Along with the personnel, we will specify and select the most appropriate vehicle to carry out the operation under CPA Contract Lift Terms & Conditions.
  • Appointed Person is the team leader who is responsible for carrying out the site survey, RAMS and planning of the lifting operation. They will have overall responsibility of the lift.  Any changes on site must first be authorised by the Appointed Person prior to commencement of works.
  • The Lift Supervisor is responsible on the day(s) of the operation.  Acting for and under the Appointed Person they will direct the lift and is able to halt operations if required.
  • Slinger/Signallers are responsible for attaching the loads and communicating with the crane operator during the lift.
